Combined agents yarded 3,832 head yesterday, comprising of 1,863 steers, 1,311 heifers, 559 cows, 80 Cows & Calves and 19 bulls. Cattle were drawn from all the usual supply areas west to Clermont. Condition was good to forward throughout and quality varied in places but was good overall. The processor and feeder buyers were unchanged. Restockers bought to reflect variations in quality from last week’s sale. However overall the market held strong.
